We [Central Hub Logistics] ran a charity football match on Sunday 26th June 2011 to raise money for CRY in memory of Matt Gadsby. As a company we are supporting this charity for the year in the hope that eventually after all our events we will be able to hold a screening day.
We raised a total of around £1700 on Sunday, with our Central Hub Logistics team winning against ‘Sheepy Old Boys’ – but only a penalty shoot-out following a 1-1 draw.
The event carried on after the match with a Fun Day at the Old Crown pub in Wiggington. The event culminated in a BBQ, cake stall, side stalls and bouncy castle – all helped by the fantastic weather. Everyone said it was a fantastic day and can’t wait for the next, which we are planning as a race night.
Further fundraising is being done by our local sports academy school who are running a no school uniform day for us; together with a parachute jump. As we are a logistics company our fuel card incentive system points are also being transferred into cash that is also being donated to CRY.
